Legal Code Word Anagrams and Other Fun Anagrams to use in OT drama

Subheading of this post should be: CAUTION. CAFFEINE INVOLVED. SECURE YOUR EYEBALLS AND PERHAPS MOST OF YOUR NEURONS AS 80% OF THIS ANAGRAM POST BECAME SO TANGENTIAL IT ACTUALLY TURNED INTO “SECANTIAL” WHICH IS A GEOMETRIC ANOMALY SERIOUS ENOUGH TO POTENTIALLY CAUSE A TEAR IN THE UNIVERSE, SUCKING US ALL INTO ANOTHER DIMENSION WHERE OTs ARE RARELY MENTIONED IN MAINSTREAM ARTICLES ABOUT REHAB…OH WAIT THAT HAS ALREADY HAPPENED. NEVER MIND. CARRY ON
Ahem, back to anagrams. Or rather, forward to anagrams!
*Sometimes you just have to go to anagrams to enhance life’s situations (in this case, as related to OT llama drama)
This site lets you type in a name/phrase and it finds all the potential anagrams. For example,  here are some of the phrases that come up for “Karen Dobyns”. So far I think “Ask Bony Nerd” or “Yak Snob Nerd” are the best and most appropriate for me, minus the fact I’m not bony (grr), so probably Yak Snob Nerd is best, it sounds like a Nepalese dish or something. Probably not a tasty one. I’m talkative, dorky, and a total OT snob in many ways (and also simultaneously a hypocrite, so always take what I say with a Costco-sized saltshaker). 
The point is, when you need a code word or phrase to use in e-mails or texts or other communications amongst yourselves in the occupational therapy world, you can use trusty code names determined via anagrams. This comes in particularly handy for names you want to avoid saying in e-mail in case they ever get subpoenaed (why can’t we just call it suepina-d or something, I’m a good speller but that word always flummoxes me and forces me to right click for the correct spelling which drives me nuts….incidentally, soup/soap and couch/coach get me too although after a moment I can usually figure them out). 
THE POINT IS, sometimes when you have a particularly troubling person in your life causing a ruckus and causing all communications to need to go via phone only just in case, sometimes a code word is helpful, as in, I know of one very troubling character whose anagram, awesomely, was extremely close to “Satan’s Fart”. If it had worked out for reals, that would have been the most lovely gift in the world that the universe could possibly offer, and definite proof that we are divinely loved. 
Okay okay, I guess be careful, legally and okay okay professionally too, as I don’t know the exact rules of how e-mail gets pulled off a server in lawsuits, so for all I know it could still be found and probably the judge and jury and legal peeps would not be amused by Satan Fart e-mails and it probably wouldn’t ultimately go so well for you, but at the very least, you can reference it via phone calls and laugh hysterically and that’s good for the heart when legal threats have brought darkness into your poor little OT soul. And actually I’m changing my mind, I think the judge and legal peeps would stay straight-faced but inwardly be dying laughing to the point their internal organs would explode. This one time my evil OT classmate Allison and I were taking yoga together, and another woman made a little yoga-induced pootie poot (okay by little I mean loud and blatant) and of course you have to be serious and ignore it and unfortunately Allison and I glanced at each other and I truly not kidding thought my vital organs were going to vibrate out of my body and I would die, trying not to laugh out loud. I was shaking. It was painful. I survived, but just barely. So maybe if everyone is busy trying not to have their organs explode with containing laughter, they can’t listen to anyone’s arguments and then you win on a technicality.
PS1: I’ve not been in a lawsuit, but just saying that when there is any sort of potential for one (whether justified or not in OT eyes), you have to be so careful, so I try to be aware of what I say/post in communications that don’t disappear and that’s a good rule of thumb in general).
PS2: I’ve been getting into improv lately, so my writing, always insanely whimsically quirky at the best of times, has now fallen over the edge into a deep, deep, deep ravine.
PS3: I have this obsession with PSes even in the middle of letters/posts and doing just one is impossible. 
PS4: I wish I were kidding.
PS5: I think any AOTA headquarter boss peoples reading this right now are shaking their head in fear of any possible influence I have on the profession’s future as I gather prospective OT students into my arms and sway to Koombaymahlord with them.
PS6: Hey AOTA headquarter boss peoples, or AHBP for short, just to follow up on that potentially quite worrisome statement, I’ve consistently been getting “fan mail” for over six years now and I’ve always been wacky to varying degrees, so clearly I haven’t damaged the profession too much, well I guess I can’t be positive actually). 
PS7: This got a little excessive, that’s what happens when you go to a crazy “flow arts” show (which included hula hooping dance, contact staffs on fire, burlesque, and other interesting dance types) on a Saturday night mixed with accidental caffeine and a whopping dose of Pinterest and Etsy, things go awry.
PS8: That reminds me that I won two raffle items (I NEVER WIN ANYTHING EVER) and one was a private yoga session and one was an hour consult with a woman who does creative consulting on online entrepreneurship (fun fact: I cannot pronounce that word correctly TO SAY MY FREAKING LIFE)….so she can help me take a step forward with the Miss Awesomeness branding. My trademark thingie has started and I just have to do a final step to that before late November or I lose it augh.
PS8: Let’s get back to the original post on anagrams, shall we? 
In conclusion: Go check out your name and those of your friends/family and then those that cause you troubles, and prepare to scan through and laugh as you find appropriate ones. We had another potentially troubling character whose anagram lead to “Ninja Cheerios” as the best fit, which let me laugh hysterically in a time that should have been fraught with fear…ooooooohhhhhh skeeeerrrryyyyyyyy, ::eerie howls heard distantly:::
Some of my name examples: 

Ask Bony Nerd
Yaks Bend Nor
Yaks Born Den
Yaks Born End
Yak Bends Nor
Yak Born Dens
Yak Born Send
Yak Born Ends
Yak Snob Nerd


I also just did the word “therapist” as I couldn’t get it to do the entire phrase right now, my favorites I scanned of the 600+ entries included Heart Pits, Earth Spit, Staph Tire, etc. My personal favorite due to my fondness for the name Tater was “Tater Hips”….

Now I did occupational, and I must say I was amused at the 2000+ results which I barely skimmed as it is now close to 6am and I guess I should sleep before I go hold babies in the NICU from noon to 3pm!

A few favorites…
Lacuna Octopi
and
Cocoa Nuptial

Panic, Action, Pica, Toucan…..lots of fun words. I highly recommend you immerse yourself in anagram world. Hey, whats an anagram for anagram? As the dorky world turns…

Adoringly,
Karen
PS: NEVER LET ME NEAR CAFFEINE. EVER.
